In response to yesterday's thread, this one is a perfect example of an early 80's show that does have a CCR but it in no way takes away from the overall hugeness of this fantastic performance.

1 Tuning 00:47
2 Feel Like A Stranger 10:12
3 Althea -\> 07:56
4 C.C. Rider 10:24
5 Ramble On Rose -\> 07:46
6 El Paso 06:19
7 Deep Elem Blues 08:10
8 Beat It On Down The Line 04:16
9 Bird Song 12:05
10 Minglewood Blues 07:19
11 Tuning 01:41
12 China Cat Sunflower -\> 09:06
13 I Know You Rider -\> 06:46
14 Samson And Delilah 08:53
15 Ship Of Fools 10:37
16 Estimated Prophet -\> 14:06
17 Uncle John\'s Band -\> 11:52
18 Drums -\> 10:39
19 Space -\> 06:51
20 The Other One -\> 08:34
21 Stella Blue -\> 09:56
22 Good Lovin\' 06:48
23 U.S. Blues 05:27

First off, this also touches on another string yesterday about the whole matrix argument. I'm pretty sure those who don't like them will always feel that way, and that is certainly understandable; but for those who DO like them, this is a pristine example. No one close to the mics who feels sure that Jerry is depending on them to yell out the next tune. Not sure how Jerr figured out what to play without those heartfelt suggestions, but what he did come up with is very, very nice. If nothing else please check the China>Rider. The transition jam is one of the best of the era. Jerr is on fire throughout and Phil is a thundering maelstrom of sonic destruction. I will say that Jerry's vocals are definitely NOT a highlight in this show, sounding strained and tired; other than that this one is a barn burner.

Can't go wrong with a MOTB Glassberg. Always quality.

I think this is quite the appropriate song for Mr. Weir as at times he looks like a graduate of the Wayne Newton School of the Performing Arts. Although I must give him credit for adding his own twist to performing. I'm pretty sure Wayne didn't spit on the first 5 rows quite as much.

Beautiful sound! You tagged it about Jerry's voice, but the playing is just gorgeous. Never heard this show before. I guess I'd written it down as one to hear from recs -- somehow, my list keeps growing, LOL! -- but you know how it goes. So many shows so little time ... Glad you put that up :-)

You know I love this show, and I am generally a fan of Hunter's work (whether he likes it or not) - but I'm not so sure that this one needed matrixing.

To me the Glassberg on its own is one knock-out aud. Really enjoying hearing it again, though - hard to believe that it's been 30 years ...

I think I'll listen to the CC rider twice. Looks like a great show. Will check this puppy out tonight
